The Yellow Trail Museum is unique form of means in preserving the history of the town of Hope. The Museum holds different artifacts that has been loaned or donated to them by past and contemporary residents of the community. The museum is a standing monument that tells the town?s historical past.

The construction of the museum was headed by three important local people of the community.
